Track Name: Set In Motion
Something was set in motion
A realness that you inspired
But what do you do with this emotion
When you feel disappointed, saddened and tired

So I was sick of learning the hard way
You think I’d know better by now
Tried to change myself for better
But look what it’s left us without

There’s a sinking feeling
I don’t want to face
Like something colder has come to take your place
I lost my friend to love
I lost my friend to love

So much room for doubt in a heart
But don’t waste you time doubting mine
I wish I had a white flag for this battle field
I wish I could ease, I wish I could please your mind

Cause there’s a sinking feeling
I don’t want to face
Like something colder has come to take your place
I lost my friend to love
I lost my friend to love
Track Name: Romantic Muse
You can’t kiss her
Cause her heart is with another
She’s your romantic muse in every way but your lover
And I’ll gamble what I got
Just so I get to see that love light in that low light
The light in your eyes

Most things they fade out
Not like I fade into you
But If I fail you, I fail my passion too
And I wish I could know, what draws me to you
Cause then I could take it
Drown it in the river blue

You can’t kiss her
Cause your heart is with another
But you’re my Romantic muse in every way but my lover
And I just miss you darlin', some things will never really change
And I still stand up for you
Yes some things will never change

And I’ll gamble what I got
I’ll gamble what I got
I’ll gamble what I got
Track Name: Home
Home now
You want a bear for your cave
Well I've already got one
And we’ve got it all nestled in

It’s too late too little
Blue boy and your fiddle
Your love it did jump over the moon for me
Yeah, we tried and we lost it
No explaining what it cost us
It just is what it is now

Stone cold
Walk like a ghost through this town
You and slumber are foes
You restless young soul

It’s too late too little
Blue boy and your fiddle
My love it did jump over the moon for you
Yeah, we tried and we lost it
No explaining what it cost us
It just is what it is now
It just is what it is now
It just is what it is now

It’s too late
Oh love I just can’t let you go
It’s too late
I want you to hurt like I do
It’s too late
Oh, how I played out like the fool
It’s too late

It’s too late…..
Track Name: Spite
Oh, you don’t know
How vacancy stings, so cruel though disguised
Always a fight
One day I’m building up this dam
The next it’s broken down by spite

I want the light
I’m so sick of sadness
I wanna leave this behind
Make this right

Should, have taken note
Closed my eyes to all these signs, could have saved heart ache and time
Illusion so blind
You’re still chasing some old dream
No one fit but silver screen

I want the light
I’m so sick of sadness
I wanna leave this behind
Make this right
Track Name: Heart and Spine
You hold a torch for your own torture
But I wish you held a torch for me
Coming around and seeing you down
It’s hard to watch your misery

Something fine in those colours
I saw behind my eyes
But your unrest leaves you lonely at best
It’s hard to know if this ever really touched you

Well I won’t be your Miss Nightingale
Won’t bellow wind into your sail
Your eyes love are so new
And this old soul can’t change you
So Peter run
Peter run
Peter run
Track Name: Calm Ways
Cry out loud, sing your song
Go ahead, get it all out cause it’s the last time round
You made me scream, you made me shout
You had such silent brutal ways
Of letting things out

Calm ways of breaking my heart
It’s a cold day here today

Your praise was great, when I complied with you
Or was something only I could recognize in you
Walk away, say goodbye
You’ve taken away
All the brightest stars in my sky

Calm ways of breaking my heart
It’s a cold day here today
It’s a cold day here today
